for users of the marketplace visionpier of
IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH

1. General provisions, scope of terms

1.1 These terms and conditions apply to the use of the internet platform (hereinafter referred to as the “Internet Platform”) of IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, Dimbacher Str. 10, 74182 Obersulm (hereinafter referred to as “IDS”), and they shall apply exclusively if the client is an entrepreneur (§ 14 BGB – German Civil Code), a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law.

1.2 IDS acts exclusively as an intermediary for contracts for complete solutions in the field of image processing in connection with hardware components such as cameras (hereinafter referred to as “Services”) from IDS. Contracts for Services offered via the Internet Platform shall be concluded solely between the user and the respective service provider (hereinafter referred to as the “System Supplier”), but not with IDS.

1.3 The general terms and conditions (“GTC”) that the customer confirms during the process of his request via the Internet Platform, shall apply.

1.4 The terms and conditions of IDS shall apply exclusively. Deviating or conflicting GTC shall not become part of the contract.

2. Subject matter of the contract, services

3. Conclusion of the contract with the system supplier

3.1 The System Supplier’s offer on the Internet platform shall not constitute a legally binding offer. The customer can make non-binding enquiries with IDS about offers that it is interested in via the Internet Platform. IDS then forwards these enquiries to the respective System Supplier. IDS only facilitates contracts via the Internet Platform and does not conclude any contracts itself.

3.2 The customer's request by clicking on the “ENQUIRY” button at the end of the online enquiry process on the Internet Platform shall not constitute a binding offer to conclude a contract for pecuniary interest with the System Supplier. The customer thereby merely expresses its interest in the selected Service. The System Supplier shall contact the customer on the basis of the enquiry in order to find out what particular services are required. Subsequently, the System Supplier shall submit a binding offer to the customer for the determined services. The customer may then accept this offer.

3.3 For the avoidance of doubt: The customer is aware that IDS is entitled to a book statement in particular from the system supplier on the basis of its brokerage activities and thus receives the following information: customer's name and address, customer number (if any), date of order, content and scope of order, date of delivery or partial deliveries and their scope, invoices with date and invoice number, invoice amount, date of payments and amount paid, date of complete settlement, returns and non-execution of transactions with date and reason and conservation measures taken by the entrepreneur in case of cancellation. The customer therefore undertakes not to make any arrangements with the system supplier to the effect that prevents the system supplier from transmitting the issue of a book statement, in particular the above-mentioned information.

3.4 Details of how the enquiry process works, how the customer can recognise and, if necessary, correct input errors in the enquiry and how the contract between the System Supplier and the customer is concluded, can be found on the IDS website at

7. Data protection

The confidential handling and protection of personal data is of great importance to IDS. Further information can be found in the IDS data protection information notice.

In accordance with Articles 15-20 GDPR, the customer shall be entitled to request information, deletion, restriction of processing and of transfer of his personal data, and, in the event of inaccuracy, to request correction of the same. Upon request, the information may be provided electronically.

8. Intellectual property, third party consent

8.1 The content published on this website may constitute intellectual property and is subject in particular to German copyright law and performer’s rights protection. Any use not permitted by intellectual property law (in particular copyright law and performer’s rights protection) requires the prior consent of the respective owner of the rights. This applies in particular to the copying, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. The rights of images in the profile belong to the respective customer or service provider, not to IDS as host provider. By uploading images etc., the customer declares to be in possession of the respective right to use the images.

8.2 On all content and data generated, transmitted, stored and published by it, the customer grants IDS a transferable and sub-licensable, irrevocable, royalty-free, non-exclusive right of use, geographically unrestricted for the purpose of executing the contract. Accordingly, IDS is entitled to unrestricted use of all content, including editing, copying, modifying, translating, creating and adopting from and in derivative works, provided that this serves the purpose of contract performance and service provision by IDS.
